Abstract

Computed tomography is the standard diagnostic examination employed to identify the morbid anatomy of cerebrospinal fluid spaces in children. This noninvasive technique provides excellent anatomic information. However, CT only indirectly characterizes the cerebral spinal fluid pathways. When it is necessary to determine precise bulk cerebrospinal fluid flow for surgical correction, then radionuclide ventriculography (RNV) is a useful adjunctive procedure.
